Event description

Description

Women are underrepresented in Wikipedia, and women journalists are no exception. Please join us as we add more women journalists to Wikipedia through the Women Do News Project.

In New York City? Join us in person on Nov. 16!

Drop in any time from 10:30am to 3pm at the Luminary collaboration hub and we'll work together to change how women are represented on Wikipedia! Bring your own laptop, bring a friend, and we'll provide Wikipedia editing guidance, as well as a light lunch and beverages.

RSVPs here are appreciated to help us plan, but not required.


Or join us virtually!

We're hosting and edit-a-thon on Nov. 2 to Nov. 16 to add more women journalists to Wikipedia. You can join us by nominating journalists, writing articles, helping to edit, or simply cheering us on! (#womendonews).

LUMINARY is New York City’s premier collaboration hub — a first of its kind — for women and women-identified who are passionate about professional development and expanding their networks.

We are defining a new category and reimagining a space for women-identified with an emphasis on investing in self-development, wellness, flexibility and giving back. Members have access to a vibrant space and a vast ecosystem of services, offerings and perks. We are in this together!
